developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we're expecting an update, a briefing on background by senior officials here at the state department. but for now this is what we know based on the conversations and what we are hearing fro
believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h

in benghazi. >> in pakistan, nearly 300 people died in a blaze at a clothing factory. germany's top court has approved the eurozone bailout fund with some conditions. the ruling clears up a key hurdle toward resolving the eurozone debt crisis. >> in the landmark decision, the constitutional court overturn legal challenges aimed at preventing the european stability mechanism and the european this compact from becoming law. 37,000 people in germany joined the suit which challenged the constitutionality. >> the plaintiffs claim germany was fighting way to much of parliament's power over the budget. >> all eyes were on the german constitutional court as a judge is prepared to hand down their decision on european stability mechanism. those who filed the suit want to stop the esm's ratification. a high court struck down the injunction, clearing the way for the measure. but the judges set conditions, capping german liability at 190 billion euros and requiring the government must keep parliament informed of all esm measures. >> the federal republic of germany must express it does not want to be bound
into the election. >> and yet his numbers have gone down since what happened in benghazi, we have seen that the presidented is not as strong on foreign affairs. and it was interesting joe emeka talked to the former president clinton and they asked him whether or not this was a mistake not to meet with other foreign leaders and he paused with what might be considered an uncomfortable pause and then he said this. >> looked to me like again from observing it that the president was reluctant to have one meeting and in the u.n. schedule where normally he'll have 15 because of the nearness of the campaign. >> and as we watch the presidentpresident presidented arriving at the united nations, what about the optics of this? >> i think he couldn't have had one meeting with bibi netanyahu and walked away. if he did this, would he have had to meet with several people, morsi, other allies in europe. i'm surprised that it came down to one or none. it should have been several or none. none being the political calculus and several being the white house presidential calculus. >> let's it talk about the
in benghazi at consulate is led by the libyan authorities with f.b.i. agents on the ground because american citizens are dead. at least publicly the state department remains cautious when it comes to assigning blame. fox is told that two groups are part of the universe of suspects in the libyan attacks affiliated with al qaeda, the affiliate in north africa. one is the lifg, the libyan islamic fighting group banned under qadaffi and the other is a group, too, that wants to see the institution of strict law in that country. >>shepard: thank you, catherine. the violent anti-american protests have spread to some of the most volatile parts of the middle east. in response to the obscure antimuslim video that mocked the prophet mohammed. and more. in egypt the most populated country in the middle east a third day of demonstrations riot police firing warning shots and tear gas to push the protesters back from the embassy in cairo. this is video from moments ago. the big fire is there. last night protesters climbed the walls of the compound and tore down the american flag. actually, the night befor
cocktails. the protests follow tuesday night's storming of the was consulate in the libyan city of benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three staffers dead. on wednesday, president obama vowed to bring to justice those responsible for the killings, which he said would not repeat ties between u.s. and libya. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. the world must stand at a to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. already, many libyans have joined us in doing so. this attack will not break the bonds between u.s. and libya. >> the obama administration has dispatched an elite group of marines to the libyan capital of tripoli and six u.s. warships toward the libyan coast in a bid to ramp up security of u.s. personnel. we'll have more on the protests throughout the middle east after the headlines. the response to the deadly attack in libya has entered the presidential campaign after republican nominee mitt romney is the tragedy to attack president obama. ho
. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. >> that's the first we learned about exactly what stevens was doing in benghazi, a city the u.s. had been warned was not safe. and the president continued in his speech vowing to find the killers. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on american. we are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government, and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> relentless in tracking down the killers, and bringing them to justice. it's a promise. but does that promise add up? it has been 14 days since the american ambassador to libya and three other americans were killed. and we still don't know why, and we still don't know who did it. and what we do know, from our reporting here at cnn, is this. in terms of a warning, three days before stevens was killed, the libyan military told senior u.s.
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. they said that they would be working closely with the libyans. there are two american destroyers with in the vicinity of the libyan waters. american officials have described this as a precautionary measure. we will wait to see how olympians see it. -- how the libyans see it. we don't know if it will go down too well in benghazi as a matter of public opinion, but we will have to wait and see. >> voters in the netherlands have rejected the fringe parties and have given the vote to centrist parties. prime minister mark rutte says he will work to build a new coalition government. >> this is the man likely to lead the next coalition. the liberal leader is known as the teflon prime minister for his ability to emerge unscathed through times of crisis. today he is celebrating his party's biggest victory in decades. >> congratulations. the vvd has never been so bad in history as it is tonight. -- so big in history as it is tonight. >> very different scenes elsewhere. leaders of the freedom party took a gamble, but it did not pay off. >> we had a party tw
states. at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya's second largest city, at least one american staff member was killed after gunmen stormed the compound and burned it down. we've got some amateur video here into nbc news from the scene. if you listen, you can hear gunshots going off in the background. witnesses say the attackers were armed with automatic rifles, rpgs. libyan forces stationed there said to have little to stop the violence. >>> in neighboring cairo, angry protesters scaled the fortified walls of the u.s. embassy, destroyed the american flag and replaced it with a black islamic banner. most of the u.s. diplomatic staff had already been evacuated in anticipation of this protest. both incidents reportedly are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel.
to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution. arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he assumed t supported the birth of aew democracy asibyans hel tiangao m rward after decades ever dictatorship. chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the countrye seed a he wig ihe le two weeks ago he travelled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. along with three o his collgues, chris wasillen thy he helped to save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story was chris stevens embodied the best of america. like his fellow foreign svice ofrs he built bridges across cultures and was deeply invested in the international cooperation that the united states represents. he acted with humility, but he also stood up for a set of principl, a belief tt indushou beeo determine their own destiny and live with li
flag and putted it up. it was the libyan security forces who let us down in benghazi when ambassador stevens was killed. i don't think it's appropriate to somehow blame the state department or the white house for this. and now obviously, we have to do everything we can to protect our people. as grow know president obama got on the phone with the president of egypt after the embassy was attacked and basically said you have to do a better job. there's is my paraphrasing what i read about the conversation in the newspaper. you have to did a better job and protect our embarrass sip. that's the right message. i think it's tined time for the americans to stand time. it's a tough time for the diplomats. they -- >> host: georgia is on the live eric on the line for democrats. hey. >> caller: yeah. i have two comments. thanks for taking my call. first of all, the g.o.p. often says there's a libbial media. that can't be phut from the truth. all media is corporate owned. when you're a tv person, all you're doing is what your boss is what you are doing. you are an employee owned by a rich people
died last night in the eastern city of benghazi after thousands of people surrounded and then attacked the american consulate there. margaret warner begins our coverage. >> warner: u.s. ambassador chris stevens was the first american envoy to die in the line of duty in more than 30 years. he and three other state department officers were killed in the assault tuesday night in benghazi. stevens had been trying to evacuate staffers from the u.s. consulate when gunmen with automatic weapons and rocket- propelled grenades stormed the lightly guarded compound and set it on fire. the identity of the attackers and their motivations remained murky. but in washington, white house officials said militants tied to al qaeda may have used protests against an anti-islam film as a diversion. this morning, president obama, with secretary of state clinton at his side, praised the slain ambassador. >> it's especially tragic that chris stevens died in benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. at the height of the libyan revolution, chris led our diplomatic post in benghazi. with characteristi
was there was no significant demonstration going on outside that consulate area in benghazi. so she is making it sound if the extremists who were heavily armed came in and joined a ongoing big demonstration that got whipped into a frenzy and led to this attack. >> right. well, obviously there's still a lot of facts to be learned. we don't know everything yet but there is one group of people who are not at all confused by what happened and those are the people who attacked consulate and killed four americans. they know what they planned and what they did. even worse than that, as tragic as this is, is the signal that it is sending to al qaeda and terrorists and extremists all around the region, which is, that we did not have adequate security for our ambassador to libya. we didn't have adequate security for our embassy in cairo on september the 11th. and that official americans and private americans are vulnerable. tunisia is a good example. when they couldn't really take over the embassy they storm ad school across the street. they couldn't get the hard target. so they went after a soft target. i thin
to join in this quote, blessed mission. in benghazi, hundreds protesting against the militia blamed for the a tack on the embassy. and to rid them of the those in eastern libya and the collapse of the regime. and a source telling the evidence points to a joint evident by al sharia not tied with al-qaeda, but sympathetic tried to fail establishing a state in eastern libya. and, the detainee is linked to the group in libya considered the most extremely. given the consulate attack is now branded tyrannyism, why the obama administration seems to be leaning to criminal prosecution. >> how could an attack go that long and what kind of response do we have in place for an attack that of could have went from six to ten to 12 hours and the law enforcement model seems to be being used here. i think that's a huge mistake, the fbi agent who briefed us was singularly unimpressive. >> reporter: fox news is first it report on 9-13 two days of the attack there was evidence suggesting insider help and reuters is now reporting that that is the central focus of the fbi investigation. guys, back to you
in the consulate in benghazi in eastern libya, there is a cross border aspect to this story that is making right now in tunis. and another aspect of the story tunisia, like other countries are being hard-hit by the united states to stop the radicalism we see here in wake of the arab spring. they told me they did not see the tunisia step between the protests of the islamist and protestors the other friday that did knowledge damage to the u.s. embassy, and its compound and a school nearby where about a hundred american kids were staying until about two hours before the protest. there with us a demand coming from the americans that the tunisia act against these radicals. and there was a taunt in that too. tunisia looking to america to fork over half a billion dollars in needed money over the next year to payoff loans in this economy. there is a bit of a taunt there too by the united states that, hey you come through there and then maybe we can come through with this. back to the breaking news, we'll get a hard confirm when we get our crew on the ground seeing this. about a thousand security surroun

americans in benghazi, libya. he wasn't a filmmaker. al-qaeda terrorist with ties to blood bloo bin laden held in. sufyan bin qumu. see this no, spontaneous reaction. but for some reason, the obama administration is linking the violence to a movie. >> and as i have said, the video that sparked the protest is disgusting and reprehensible. eric: that was today. here is white house spokesman jay carney yesterday. listen. >> based on what we know now, and knew at the time, we have no evidence of preplanned, or premeditated attack. >> eric: jay carney today says it's self-evident it was terrorism. so americans deserve some answers. why won't this president call a terrorist a terrorist? hillary clinton, madam secretary, smart lady, do you really think it was all about a movie? jay carney, c'mon, you know better than what you have been saying. ambassador rice, please stop insulting our intelligence. this is a coverup of the highest levels of the united states government. don't they realize this just emboldens al-qaeda? andrea, the issue here is what is the perception in the muslim world? what is
department worker at the u.s. consulate in the libyan city of benghazi. clinton calling on libya's president now to help protect americans in this country. she says the u.s. is also working with governments in other countries to protect americans abroad. protests also erupting in egypt. take a look. this is the u.s. embassy in cry row. demonstrators scaled walls and tore down the u.s. flag there. most of the officials had left the compound, having been warned of this protest. this film was made by a california man. later it was dubbed in arabic and posted on youtube. >>> more than 190 people are dead in pakistan's two biggest cities after fires broke out in two factories. the largest fire is at a garment factory in karachi. crews are still trying to put out the flames there. firefighters say many of the 166 who died were trapped in a basement. 25 others are dead in a shoe factory in lahore. many in pakistan's factories lack basic safety equipment like fire exteinguishers or sprinkle systems. >>> someone shot a 16-year-old boy in the district. it happened just after 1:00 on 37th street in sou
, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true reflection of a feeling of the libyan people and its feelings toward violence and extremism. libya will never be home to extremist groups. we shall always be a peaceful moslem country, one of moderation -- peaceful muslim country, one of moderation. mr. president, the new libya will be a place of hospitality, transparency, enabling women and youth. it will be a libya by all and for all at the same time. it cannot fail to condemn the anti- islam campaign and those defaming his profit. -- prohet. such campaigns increase hatred and provocation and attention among civilizations. they go beyond the concept of free expression. this makes it necessary for the general assembly of the united nations to adopt a covenant in order to criminalize actions that are insulting of the symbols of all religions. and we, as muslims, believe fully in the unity of mankind, of the brotherhood of man, and we express our support for dialog between religions and cooperation,

in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we receive from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries in the region, including egypt, tunisia, and yemen, have taken steps to secure our diplomatic facilities. and so have religious authorities around the world. but, understand that the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. there are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded. the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully. diplomacy can take the place of work. -- diplomacy can take the place of war. all of us have a stake in working for a greater opportunity for our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. we are serious about these ideals. we must speak
consulate in benghazi a huge tragedy and says the libyan people lost a great friend in ambassador chris stevens. the remarks from libya's president comes as his government tries to rein in the power of various rebel groups that helped topple dictator muammar qaddafi. this development won't help. one of the libyan rebels that helped capture the dictator has been killed. the his relatives say he was tortured and shot in a rival town. now they threatening revenge. greg palkot streaming live from tripoli. >> reporter: jon, those close to the former rebel say he was killed by a qaddafi loyalist and they want action as a sign how unsettled things are. regarding that crackdown on militias we're getting signs it could be working. we've been seeing compounds here in tripoli where libyan security forces moved in forcing out militants. our contact in benghazi says that a key militia there appears to be going under government control. there are still many others here who say the extremist militants, some who might be tied to that consulate attack, are simply going underground taking some very dange
for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c
